ROOM 555 Irma Joanne
“The process of applying plaster on the naked skin represents for me the unique feeling of
‘intimacy’, we so long for nowadays”
IRMAJOANNE is an interdisciplinary artist from Rotterdam with a background in Fine arts, Scenography and Bodywork. She specializes in making plaster body sculptures. She uses the material to communicate with the skin through physical connection. This kind of intimacy is experienced as a sacrifice and a gratification. An ode to the natural body. She creates rituals that feel mental and spiritual, yet playful and caring. By doing so, she evokes body awareness in
both her own and the other body.
